Lorne: Once the word spreads you beat up an innocent old man, well, the truly terrible will think twice before going toe-to-toe with our Avenging Angel. Spike: Yes. The geriatric community will be soiling their nappies when they hear you're on the case. Bravo.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

I think Michael has Catholic connotations, but I am most likely way off on my reasoning.

Oh huh. Really?

"Because if life gives you lemons / you don't have to make / lemonade / sugar isn't free / and grief doesn't have / to be productive." -from "lemonade" by Kaitlin Shelter

New thread! The title makes me laugh.

"And to be clear, I am the hell. And the high water."

So, there is a UCLA professor who is on twitter and he posted 2 instagram photos that are Weiner-like, (as in Anthony), Weiner-reminiscent. The first one had his address on it, so I tweeted him and said, you might want to delete this tweet because it has your address on it. I found his house in 5 minutes.

The second was even more inappropriate. I'm going to leave it alone because it is his acct, but it sounds like he has instagram auto-posting to twitter, whether he wanted to or not. Maybe that's how he wants to conduct himself.

Well not canonically, no, but this is transformative fiction.

I found his house in 5 minutes.

This is why the internet (already has/never gets) nice things.

It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

Hokay, subbed. But it's not showing up in my message center?

Mine, either.

Wait. Let me go check again.

Fandom means never having to say "But where would I wear that?"

Timelies all!

Yay, new thread!

'we all walk this earth feeling we are frauds. The trick is to be grateful and hope the caper doesn't end any time soon"

What? I leave you people for a few minutes and you start a new thread?!

I was out killing vines. They all grew back from the last time I killed them. Really, I should just declare my backyard a "Vine and Maple Nursery" and bask in my success instead.

Every now and then, I think I might actually be a little odd.

That intoxicating new-thread smell!

msbelle, I am also freaking about about my savings being depleted, though it's not because I bought a thing, it's because I paid someone to paint my house and they never came back to do it. They are disappeared, with my money. I really need to sell some of this stuff I've been meaning to sell for years, but it won't come close to replacing the lost cash. And I really hate selling stuff on eBay or Craigslist because then I have to deal with strange humans.

That article about the woman who was rescued from the train? Of course I'm glad she's all right, but the first thing I noticed was that she fell through an eight-inch gap between the train and the platform. EIGHT inch gap, a grown woman. I'm astonished that there are people that tiny.

Theo, I should declare my overrun garden a successful Mint and Morning Glory Farm!
